Sen Abdullahi Adamu (APC- Nasarawa West) has tasked electorates to elect leaders with substance and ability to turn around the fortunes of the country.
Adamu made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in his country home, Keffi, Nasarawa State.
He urged voters to vote for credible candidates in the February polls to ensure good governance in the country.
“It is when you elect God fearing leaders who have the interest of the nation and people at heart that meaningful development can be achieved,” he said.
Adamu, who was the first civilian governor of the state, enjoyed leaders at all levels to justify the opportunity given them to serve by executing people-centered projects.
“Poor leadership and insecurity in the country was part of my reason to defect from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC).
“The APC has provided a level playing ground for all aspirants, this shows that APC is truly democratic by upholding the tenet of fairness, equity and justice.
“I urge the people to vote APC in order to enjoy positive dividend of democracy.
“If APC is voted into power in 2015 at all levels, it will address the problem of corruption, unemployment and insecurity.”
Adamu called on the party supporters to continue to support the aspirations of candidates of the party in order to ensure the victory of the party in the 2015 general elections.
He assured the people of his constituency of his determination to initiate more people- oriented projects.
The lawmaker called on APC supporters to be law abiding before, during and after the elections and not to allowed themselves to be used by selfish individuals.
He called on Nigerians to pray for the peaceful conduct of the general elections and commended the developmental strides of Gov. Tanko Al-Makura’s administration in the state. (NAN)
